Kids should be able to play video games in school. Video games help relieve stress you could play them with friends making it a social activity. Some video games are even made for education and are supposed to teach you. So support video games in school.

Con

Video games should not be allowed in school. I currently go to a school that provides computers for students. I assume that when you talk about providing video games, you are talking about the free use of technology. The problem is, student will just abuse this privilege, in fact, the kid next to me in math class is just playing video games. Video games in school would be nothing but distracting and counter-productive. And while yes they may relieve stress, the build up of homework will stress the students even more, they play video games in school not doing work, they get more homework because of the work the student didn't do, and then, they play more video games to relieve the stress they caused. And of course some are educational, but those are the games students hate, they wouldn't play those, they would just abuse their privilege. Do not support video games in school.
